Default I thought this hand was extremely easy...

Just making sure you do too. Players in the blinds were tight, initial raiser was loose.

Edit: I put this in a reply but it should be in the OP. This is a stars turbo so the blinds go up much faster than they do on Party, and they are going up next hand.

PokerStars No-Limit Hold'em Tourney, Big Blind is t50 (7 handed) converter

UTG (t4010)
MP1 (t3310)
MP2 (t1575)
CO (t445)
Hero (t1075)
SB (t1600)
BB (t1485)

Preflop: Hero is Button with 3[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img], 3[img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img].
<font color="#666666">3 folds</font>, <font color="#CC3333">CO raises to t445</font>, <font color="#CC3333">Hero raises to t1075</font>,

Heh. Thought process: with my short stack I'm going to need to win showdowns to money anyway, plus the likely dead money makes this correct.

Why is a coinflip bad here?

because your stack isn't short.

edit: and because sometimes you're way behind.

There isnt enough dead money, and there is no FE.

I dont push here - but i have a coinflip-phobia early in the game so im willing to be told im wrong.

Phill
ps, with more dead money (ie 50/100 blinds to add a bit of desperation too), or with some kind of FE i dont mind pushing small pairs. Note these two things are generally mutually exclusive.

You can't be certain you'll be lucky enough to have a coinflip here &amp; two people are still yet to act. You aren't desperate and aren't being laid the odds to play here.
